Most likely Blackberry Messenger ... Go to Blackberry Messenger and see if you have a message or pending request.

I think that is called "pushed content". I used to get weather info pushed to my 7105t. Should show up in your message mailbox or email mailbox with a similar icon. Usually you have to set-up or request for these types of messages to be sent to your device. The number next to the globe is simply the number of this type of message in your mailbox... I think .....

The globe is a pending web request. You went to browse a web page when it was not possible (out of coverage, on a phone call, or something) and it cached your request for the web page until later when conditions improved.
